Outstanding Service & Food

This is truly a hidden gem in Kimberley that I would highly recommend for the food and service. You will not be disappointed. Make sure to leave room for dessert, their banana cream pie is to die for.

Since moving to Kimberley recently this diner has been on the "must check out" list, and I'm so happy we came in! My fiance and I shared soups, split pea and farmers sausage, and two pieces of pie. The soups reminded me of my grandma's, hearty and perfectly seasoned! The pie, oh the pie! As a baker I find that... More

This place has a magic all its own. It was great as Mary's kitchen and now the décor and atmosphere is even better as Bear's Eatery. Food selection was awesome and everything tasted great. Awesome place for family or friends to go for a meal and hangout.

We were in Kimberley for a weekend ski trip and everyone was starving after a full day on the hill. I Was a little sceptical as the building could use some updating but so glad I gave it a chance! Large menu made it hard to choose but I went with the chefs famous pot pie. Kids had the chicken... More

Took the family in during the AB family day weekend. We are locals and the Platzl was just too busy for us this weekend. So glad we decided to pop into Bears and try it out. (Haven't been in since it was Marys Kitchen). I had the fish n chips, it was cooked just right, the coleslaw was fantastic (... More

Comfort food like you wish your Momma made. Love the all day breakfast. The made on site deserts, pot pies and dinner specials have never disappointed.

The food was excellent and the service is great too. We both had pot pies and the crust was amazing! I wanted to order a second one to take home it was just so good! The dessert pies was great as well and I am looking forward to going back again :)

The food was great, and they have a wide variety of gluten free food, including most of the sandwiches. However, there may have been cross-contamination from other things, such as on the fries, as my wife did not feel well after eating there. She was the only one, and she is the only one who is Celiac. They also seem... More
